I don’t know about you, but I have a TON to be thankful for. The majority of 2016 has been extremely challenging for me. The Lord, however, has his hands in all of our ‘challenges,’ usually in ways we are not immediately aware of.
Take a quick look at these two scripture passages:
The issue of Praising Him in everything has been on my mind lately. It’s been in my devotion time, and it was the topic of our Chapel time at work this past Friday.
Here are just 2 benefits to keeping our blessings in mind every day.
- Our challenges and needs become less pronounced as we go about our day when we intentionally try to identify all the different blessings that we do have.
- It can change our attitudes. Our entire outlook on life can do a 180 turnaround when we realize that we really do have many more blessings in our life than we do hardships.
So, do you want to experience less anxiety caused by the things that worry you? Would you like to have more of an optimistic outlook on life? If so, start counting your blessings and praise the one who is the true source of all that you and I have to be thankful for.
If you are interested, here’s the Praise Challenge for all of December. Every Monday identify 5 blessings in your life. Then, simply pray over them and praise Jesus for them each day of the week. If you want, you can even post them on social media to encourage others to jump in too. If you do, please remember to use #PraiseChallenge on each post. Each Monday we will identify and share 5 new blessings to praise Him for.
How does that sound?
This December, may you be blessed in your search for all the ways Jesus really is actively taking care of you.
